There is some serious problems with file ownership on Freebsd servers running cPanel.

In a phpsexuec environment, files are owned by user:user at least they are all owned by user:user on our RH servers irrigardless of what application was use to access them or what application was used to upload them, ftp, Frontpage etc.

We moved 245 websites to a Freebsd server. We are finding the group ownership of files change from user:user to user:nobody when users are using Frontpage. :rolleyes: :eek:

Why is that?

Before using FP:

-rw-r--r-- 1 info info 14268 May 7 14:16 lessons.htm
drwxr-xr-x 3 info info 512 May 7 08:37 lessons_files/
-rw-r--r-- 1 info info 11379 May 7 14:16 location.htm
drwxr-xr-x 3 info info 512 May 7 09:43 location_files/
-rw-r--r-- 1 info info 27303 May 7 14:16 photo_gallery.htm

After publishing use FP;

-rw-r--r-- 1 info nobody 14268 May 7 14:16 lessons.htm
drwxr-xr-x 3 info info 512 May 7 08:37 lessons_files/
-rw-r--r-- 1 info nobody 11379 May 7 14:16 location.htm
drwxr-xr-x 3 info info 512 May 7 09:43 location_files/
-rw-r--r-- 1 info nobody 27303 May 7 14:16 photo_gallery.htm

Why are the group permissions getting changed to nobody after the completion of publishing via FP?

HAS ANY FREEBSD ADMIN NOTICED THIS??

It seems that this issue is not only releated to FP publishing. Any file uploaded via FTP sets the group ownership of the file to USER:NOBODY. This also includes applications installed via Fantastico. The directory is owned by USER:NOBODY and so are the files within the applications directory.

IS THIS RIGHT? It doesnt seem like files should be owned by USER:NOBODY, not under phpsuexec and all files on my RH boxes are owned by USER:USER not USER:NOBODY.

We have had a ticket open on this subject for over 2 days now including another ticket without any response from Cpanel. What are they doing, taking a vacation? :eek: :rolleyes:
